Randy West Quotes and Sayings

I hope you find great value in these Quotes by Randy West from my large collection of motivational and inspirational quotes and sayings.

and it was my first appearance.

As an announcer, 'The Price Is Right' is the mother
of all shows not only because of its legacy,
but because it is by far the most demanding game show.

and that's especially true about 'Price' because of
my respect for the show and it's production team.
- Randy West

the work is being a member of a team of so many very bright,
articulate and talented professionals.
- Randy West

Of course watching a particularly exciting game or
a wonderful contestant is always a joy.

Laughter and applause really are powerful.

As I slowly managed to take what I had learned into
a transition from contestant to announcer and warm-up,
I first had to prove myself on pilots.
And as you know, many pilots are taped for each show
that is lucky enough to breakthrough to being a series.
- Randy West

Because these show are live, script pages are being
switched during the program and new commercial teases

scribble them on scrap paper before reading them.

and writing is a vital part of any game show.
You could easily argue that the writing is the key
ingredient that makes 'Jeopardy!' so great.

no greater show to be a contestant on than 'Price' -
the prizes can be huge,
and the whole world loves and watches the show.

the ability to perform expertly, consistently,
precisely, over and over again, under pressure and
on demand is what's needed.

Also at the top of the list was my three day appearance on 'Press Your Luck'.
In addition to the intense competition of each of those games,

tapings that I was winning some serious money.
- Randy West

'Press Your Luck' was probably the most exciting because
of the unpredictability of the game and how I won on
one of the three days on the very last spin against all odds.
It was one of those great unpredictable game show moments.
- Randy West

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed

"Mother Teresa Prayer"
People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered;
... Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you
of selfish, ulterior motives;
... Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some
false friends and some true enemies;
... Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
... Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
... Build anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
... Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
... Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
... Give the world the best you've got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.
We can do no great things - only small things with great love.
- although commonly attributed to Mother Teresa,
who kept a copy of this prayer on
the wall of her Calcutta orphanage,
this prayer was actually written by Kent Keith.

Imagine what you'll know tomorrow.
- the movie Men in Black

Everyone has an opinion on many subjects
and is ready to share those opinions -
labeling them as "truth."
Sometimes it is relatively easy
to filter out these opinions.
Upon hearing an ad for the latest
weight-loss powder on late-night TV,
our skepticism leaps to our defense.
However, if we have heard the same opinion for years
from our parents, friends,
government officials, or religious leaders,
we are more likely to believe without questioning
than to raise our filter of skepticism
and ask the hard questions.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Nobody grows old merely by living a number of years.
We grow old by deserting our ideals.

belonged to another church.
